With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Monday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Leaders of the late-’80s/early-’90s dance club-influenced Manchester scene, English rock outfit Happy Mondays
are back with their latest release The Early EP’s, which features their first four mini albums: Forty Five EP, the Freaky Dancin/The Egg EP, the Tart Tart EP and the 24 Hour Party People EP. Remastered from the original two-inch tapes held in the Factory/London records archive, expect to find gems in this collective from the likes of ‘The Egg’, ‘Yahoo’, and ‘This Feeling’ to opening track ‘Delightful’, ‘Freaky Dancin’ (Live)’, ‘Little Matchstick Owen’ and more from this legendary group.
